Rock bottom

A place for the forgotten

 

It’s renown for being bleak

Reserved for the lost and weak

 

But I would disagree

Rock bottom

Isn’t for the forgotten

 

It’s where people have drawn lines in the sand

And decide to take a stand

 

It’s a place to recharge the soul

To reassess life goals

 

To decide which battles need to be won

And consider hurdles still to be overcome

 

We cross paths with strangers in this place called rock bottom

 

Strangers who’ve made peace with their past

And teach each other’s that the bad days soon pass

 

They remind you that getting lost is ok

Whilst you find your own way

 

It’s a place filled with hope

A place to learn new ways to cope

 

Burned bridges can be rebuilt

As you work through your guilt

 

Closed doors will reopen

By your actions and words unspoken

 

You can find hope and faith

Which can shape that negative attitude into warm feeling if gratitude

 

You learn to stop being a slave to the past

And as you lay your past mistakes to rest

 

And start to feel less stressed

Aspirations for change come into fruition as you make your transition

 

Some people stay longer until they feel stronger

Either way

It doesn’t matter how long they stay

 

This place people call rock bottom

 

Isn’t for the forgotten

 

It’s a place for fresh starts
